Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey could launch a ground operation in Syria anytime.

Turkish Presidential Spokesperson Ibrahim Kalin told reporters at a news conference that Turkey supports the political process that began in late December [2022] with a meeting of Turkish and Syrian defense ministers in Moscow.

"There is still a possibility of a ground operation in Syria at any time, depending on the level of threats," Kalin added.

Last year, Turkey launched an air operation in Rojava and threatened to launch a ground attack; the air strikes claimed tens of lives and displaced hundreds. Warnings and protests from the United States and Western countries stopped Turkey from launching a ground invasion at the time.

Turkey plans to create a "Safe Zone" in Rojava that would threaten the existence of the Rojava administration, one of the most democratic, women-led places in the world.
